    Is there a photo of the final finished slouchy? Would love to see how it looks…I am a beginner. Thank you, Lala

    Is there a specific reason why this pattern ends each row with sl st, then multiple dc to start next round?
    Could this be crocheted in a continuous spiral?
    What would be the difference in appearance of the hat?

    Please post a photo of this hat. I have spent time on patterns with no photo only to be disappointed with finished product.

      You could do this in a continuous spiral. It just makes it harder to know where the beginning of the row is. If you use a removable stitch marker that would work fine.

      We do not have a photo of this pattern currently and no plans to update it any time soon.
